Bagas, Gironde

Baga is a commune of 287 inhabitants (as of 1 January 2011) in the Gironde department in the region of Aquitaine. Baga is a member of the Communauté de communes du Réolais. Its inhabitants call themselves Bagassons.


Baga is located in the lowlands of the 133 -kilometer Dropt, which simultaneously forms the northern border, and approximately eight kilometers south-west flows into the Garonne. About six kilometers south lies Langon, which also has its own train station. On the eastern outskirts of the village today runs the dual D 670, which still traded until a few years ago as a national road 670. Originally it was on the old bridge through the town. In the late 1990s a new building area with about 30 construction sites were south of the existing town center tapped.


Core cell of the place is probably the weir mill Baga from the 11th century, which was placed in 1926 under monument protection. The elevated lying church of Notre -Dame de Baga from the 12th century was built on a former Roman villa. Also worth seeing is the laundry.
